    Very nice - I have that Aqua Terra and also a Sub-date. Great choices!

    I'm currently in negotiations with the AD to buy this. Pics posted because it's definitely watch porn and also to request any thoughts on the potential purchase (Grand Lange 1 in rose gold with discontinued two-tone grey/black dial)? I'll be liquidating some of the current collection if I go for it.

    My opinion is if you are in a position to buy a Lange, do it. [​IMG] That is a gorgeous model and looks a bit more interesting than the typical white or black faced model.

    I hate the overlap of the date window with the time dial. Hate it. It's like they took the Lange 1 movement and just put it in a bigger case. I think the Lange 1 looks great, but I could never get past that overlap on the Grand model.

    Good point. From the brochure, it looks like that what they did.

    I agree with this as well, the overlapping date as well as the second face has a negative impact on the harmony of the dial layout. I prefer the smaller version for that reason.

    Irrespective of your decision, its a great watch and worth the liquidation of the collection.

    Wish they made the Nomos without the label and without the sub dial.

    That would be my perfect dress watch.


    Looks like the Stowa is running a couple minutes fast[​IMG]

    Here is my current favourite that gets worn pretty much every day. I posted this watch... but a different picture a few months ago. I plan to make another watch purchase in the next month... so hopefully this one will get a little rest every now and again[​IMG]

    Thanks imightbechad! It's an Omega Speedmaster Professional Limited Edition (40th Anniversary of the first space walk). It has the exact same case and movement of the regular non-LE speedmaster.

    The last photo is a little cheesy.

    Obama's watch, choose your logo.

    Could be OK for a beater watch.


    Pretty ugly...but I guess American politicians have to appeal to the everyday folk....didn't Mccain get a lot of attention for wearing fancy italian loafers? [​IMG]
